  1. Dolenska

Abstract.

Melorheostosis is a benign bone tissue dysplasia characterized by unilateral osteosclerosis. The disease was first described by Joanny and Leri who compared osteosclerotic changes with the appearance of „dripping wax or flowing candle“. Hence the name melorheostosis – „flowing bone“. To remind this rare condition we present a clinical case of our practice.

Key words: MELORHEOSTOSIS. OSTEOSCLEROSIS. RADIOGRAM. MRI.
